I don't despair, and I don't want to dwell in anger, but it is tough sometimes, especially when should-be allies are dismissive.

@Configures In those cases where I never expected trust or fellowship, I sometimes spare a moment to dislike someone but then I go on with my day & don't dwell on it.

I only obsess over my grievances in those cases where there was formerly trust and togetherness. That's where there is so much to be gained "if only it were different. If only, if only, if only..."

Has this been your experience?

@matt I get a little worked up if they're being hypocritical, even if it isn't personal betrayal. This may not be my most healthy behavior. 🙂 Thanks for the perspective!
